Johnson and Johnson Consumer Group Chairman Colleen Goggins Announces Retirement Effective March 1, 2011
Posted Sep 16 2010 3:07pm
The letter of announcement from Bill Weldon is shown below. We keep seeing many top executives from all areas of healthcare and government following this process. It’s complicated out there today and technology is running a muck on those who may not be up to date as the decision making processes depend on the information we receive from our computer screens.
With the recent recalls and consumer product issues from the various areas of Johnson and Johnson, I guess it’s time for a new face at the top of the helm. With retooling the factories and closing one, the consumer group has had their share of being under the public spotlight for sure.
Perhaps new leadership might entertain a better recall system too and get the FDA and DEA in on this too for a pilot program….hint…hint…
This news may not be too shocking as it has gone on for years that heads eventually roll when things are not going right with big corporations so here’s one. BD
